The Background

The Pioneers had an outstanding season last year that ended in a trip to the NJCAA National Tournament after winning the Region X Tournament to secure their bid.  The Pioneers lost some very talented sophomores at who moved on to 4 year programs including All Region Players Marquise Simuel and Malik Gaffney.  If one thing is for sure it is that Coach Cremins, the reigning Region X Coach of the Year will have the Pioneers ready to play on October 8th at the #BOTSJamboree and throughout the season.  The Pioneers return great depth on the perimeter in Anthony Adger and JeQuan Perry and inside in Armani Hill and Aj McGhee.  Also look for transfers Jonathan Sanks, Kwei Lartey, Zack Watson to make an impact.
